As the digital economy continues to mature, it’s clear that data centers are the engine around which just about every business revolves today. As such, it’s incumbent upon the IT organizations responsible for fine-tuning those engines to understand where the next advances in IT are likely to take them.
At the Data Center World conference in National Harbor, Maryland, this September, Bill Kleyman, vice president of strategy and innovation for MTM Technologies and a frequent contributor to Data Center Knowledge, will outline how data centers will evolve in the months and years ahead.
“Every organization today is becoming a digital entity,” Kleyman said. “That has a lot of implications for how IT is actually managed. There will be no more silos inside the data center.”
In addition to the rise of cloud computing and open APIs, Kleyman said, emerging technologies, such as software-defined data centers, multi-layered data center control, data center operating systems, and data center automation and robotics, will transform almost every aspect of data center management.
In addition, advances in energy and cooling technologies will make it more cost effective to build and deploy new data centers, he said.
Put it all together, and it’s already clear that the way most data centers are run today will bear little to no resemblance to how those same data centers will be built, deployed, and managed just a few short years from now.
